Dharmendra Pradhan stated that people of Odisha have been impressed by the pro-poor programmes of the Narendra Modi Government and would vote for BJP to form Government both in the State and at the Centre. Pradhan said this while attending his party’s ‘Vijay Sankalpa’ rally at Aska and Khallikote in Ganjam district and Dimisar under Ranapur Assembly constituency in Nayagar district. He alleged that deserving people have not been benefited out of KAALIA scheme.
He reiterated that the State Government didn’t implement the Union Government’s Ayushman Bharat Yojana apprehending that the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi might increase by the scheme. People are not getting free treatment in any hospital outside the State under the Biju Swasthya Kalyana Yojana, he said. He claimed that the LPG connection to households has increased from 20 lakh to 75 lakh in Odisha during the last five years of the Modi Government.
